Can I use bone-in pork chops for this recipe?

The proper internal temperature for safely cooking pork is 145-degrees Farenheight. Gone are the days that pork needs to be overcooked, bone dry and tasteless.

@Nellie Tracy, would these work with extra thick chops too and you would just cook them longer? The chips on the bottom layer don’t get soggy?
